Within the need to create new production models that comply with the principles of food security and economic profitability, it is important that these provide certainty for producers while respecting the environment. Organic farming is the model that offers the highest level of commitment to the environment.

Organic farming combines scientific knowledge with farmers’ expertise in order to obtain safer food produce that has a wide range of different fragrances and flavours.

Two of the central pillars of organic farming are soil management and environment. Together with crop rotation and closed nutrient and energy cycles, these provide the backbone for this production system. In organic cultivation systems in greenhouses you additionally find:

  • The use of auxiliary organisms for natural control or biological control.

  • The use of partner crops and/or accompanying flora which promote the presence of auxiliary organisms.

  • The use of sandy soils (which in their design and use present a functional modification to soil for cropping out of season, combining in the system the modification of physical, chemical and biological properties that are extremely important for the growth of plants).

  • The use of composting techniques for organic material.

  • The use of soil bio-disinfection techniques, in the event of pathogens appearing, resulting from the use and handling of organic material.
